There is no such animal. I think it was in a Bill Walton interview, asked his fave GD song by a Mr. Jones (apol. to Bob D) His reply; "the next one" Same applies to shows. As Jerry said, we put the music out there, and it is what it is, till the next time. (tape, cd, DSO, et. al.)

I met Bill Walton at a B.B. Chung King an the Screaming Buddhaheads show, with George Carlin and Timothy Leary, and only about 200 people in the audience... a benefit for the Albert Hoffman Foundation, we had that 'favorite show' conversation... he said his favorite show is either the last one he saw or the next one he's going to see. I liked that. He was really cool and friendly.

I'm rather new to the Dead field, have been browsing some of the acres of gdlive and some of their albums. The gig at Rotterdam, Holland, May 11 '72 is very good though the sound quality a bit spotty sometimes (at 64kbps). Great mix of country, blues and adventurous, jamming psychedelia.

A fave among the recordings of groups around the Dead is the gig with jazz/funk band the Reconstruction of June 22, 1979, at the Keystone, Palo Alto CA (also gdlive.com) with Garcia on lead giuitar and joined by Ron Stallings on vocals - it seems to come from an obscure japanesse cassette but they must have known they were being taped (radio broadcast?)
Superb sound quality, lots of funky vibe and great trombone and trumpet playing. Gaylord Birch's drumming is a joy right through, makes me think of Dennis Davis' work with Bowie. Favourite track: "Make It Better".

hey now... i was always a '72 fan, until recently. i will agree with your assesment of their unique sound and musical prowess. picking a favorite show is difficult, but as far as '72 , stanley theater 9 28 is my choice.
